Many older adults and their families are struggling to bridge the gaps between work and retirement, full independence and limited support, good health and chronic conditions. Senior centers are instrumental in bridging those gaps.
Local senior centers have regular operating hours and are often the community's focal point for older adult services. The senior center provides excellent opportunities for socialization, relaxation and participation in a variety of programs and activities.
Senior centers throughout Illinois offer a wide range of programs and activities for older adults, services which may include congregate meals, transportation, education, counseling, legal assistance and health screening. Senior Centers and the service programs they offer provide a link with local community resources available to older persons.
